This morning I bring some news of how the resort plans to re-open for the end of the season. The plan as it stands is to open for Saturday and Sunday this coming weekend and then from the weekend after until the end of Golden Week. Details below.

It will be great to be able to get back out there - there's still a lot of snow left and with lots of sunny days likely it should be a good end to the season.

One important point to make - there was no structural damage at all to the facilities in Zao due to the earthquake. Closing for this period has been due to power supplies and coping with the general situation rather than damage.

Hope you will be able to enjoy this last period of the season!
